Calling all budding archaeologists and palaeontologists!

Usually just reserved for schools and daycares, in celebration of Culture Days, we are opening up our mock dig to members of the public. While this event is designed for young explorers aged 5 to 12, anyone can sign up regardless of age.

This activity is limited to 20 participants, so you must preregister for this event by calling 867-667-8855 to speak directly to one of our interpretive guides.

Beware: this is a hands-on, quasi-educational, group activity that could get a little messy. Don’t miss your chance to experience the excitement of scientific discovery.



Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre

We are a museum that specializes in the Ice Age prehistory of the Yukon. We interpret a variety of fossil and artifact discoveries through exhibits, films, and a variety of programs.
